Toxic feminism, just a random specimen among many

A totally unrelated woman activist, but you can still feel the fascination with mindless compliance.

The Medium platform still pushes one-sided content in my email. I now mostly ignore it, after I wrote https://blumudus.com/2018/medium-sucks/
But today I decided to give it a chance.
This time the first article that they promoted was titled: “Why as a Liberal I Read Fox News to Know Who’s Actually Going to Win in November” and it piqued my interest.

The incipit of the article:

“Remember how bad it felt on election night 2016 when we all realized Hillary had lost?”

LOL!!!

Anyway, the photo of the author seemed crazily stereotypical, so I clicked to see what else she wrote.

The list is hilariously bad, confirming every cliché about what we could call… toxic femininity? Toxic feminism turned into a self-hating, egotistical, anti-feminine anti-masculine anti-decency, needy, fake-edgy yet conformist, immature posturing?

 

I won’t link the articles list here, because I think the author doesn’t deserve it (not that it would matter to her viewership), but you could easily find it if you wished.
